APAN e-news November 2012

Dear APAN members and friends

ACTION ALERT

Please do promote our petition for Australia to support Palestine’s bid at the UN in any way you can.  If you prefer print out a hard copy to collect signatures and then send back to jessica@apan.org.au by the 12th November.    APAN also encourages individuals and organisations to send an individual letter to the Foreign Minister, Bob Carr.

We’d recommend people look at Daniel Flitton’s article in the Fairfax papers where he advocates Australia to step up in this regard.
